The ISAC-II LINAC at TRIUMF employs superconducting RF cavities to accelerate heavy ions to high energies efficiently. Keeping this accelerator functioning consistently means that its supporting cryogenics system must be kept working dependably and the aftereffects of detrimental events, like site power disruptions and cavity quenching, must be reduced to a minimum. Improvements and upgrades are implemented to enhance its reliability as new things are learned. This presentation will cover how this is accomplished at the ISAC Facility at TRIUMF.
